    OK MATEY,
    This is what you do, get ya self a copy of virtualdub, load it up click file open, open the xvid file then click on file again and go down to save wav*. give it a destination area and name
    when you have done this load tmpg up, depending on which version you use, im going to assume it fires the wizard up, so choose which mpg you want, now you want to load the settings up and change the vbu buffer size to 0
    and the bitrate should be changed to automatic VBR
    but 2 pass vbr gives you more control over the size of the end file its going to create
    k now go make ya self a coffee
    :)
    good luck buddy

    k in virtual dub load the xvid movie up.
    then click on file again and choose save wav.
    this will save just the audio to the film.
    k when it finished click on audio and choose no audio
    then click on video and make sure its on direct stream
    now click on file again and choose save avi
    this will save just the film with no audio
    when this has finished close it down and open tmpg
    put the video file in its right place and the audio file in its right place.
    when you done that you want to load the settings up within tmpg and unlock the vbu buffer size. changing this to 0. and change the bitrate to automatic vbr,
    thats it just click start, im assuming your naking mpeg2. however if your making mpeg1 then the settings can be left alone

    let us know how ya get on matey

    Hi AIDEN and FROSTBITE,

    I read all your messages on converting xvid to mpeg. I tried the way aiden mentioned. However, I ended up with a mpeg with audio only and no video. I downloaded nimo codec 5.0 (the only available one i could find) and it still won't work.
    The avi file produced from virtualdub can be viewed with my divx player but it would be previewed on tmpgenc.

    Am I doing something wrong here? or is it something wrong with the software or procedure?
    Please help.
    Thanks
